Spring Patio Refersh: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart}

Today I am excited to partner with Better Homes & Gardens once again!  As a BHG Stylemaker, I am honored to work with this amazing brand sharing their stylish and affordable line of home products from Walmart! As always, any product reviews or opinions are honest feedback from my personal experience.  This post contains affiliate links to Walmart, which means the brand rewards me with a small commission for any sale resulting from a link click through on my blog! Thanks so much for your continued support!

It is starting to feel like spring here in Texas! Of course, if you live here then you know that doesn't mean a lot...winter weather could still be showing up unannounced and uninvited anytime but I decided to take my chances and start getting my patio ready for the new season!  With the help of the Better Homes & Gardens line, available at Walmart, I did a quick and budget friendly patio refresh and cannot wait to spend time enjoying my updated space!  Their line of patio furniture, décor and accessories is fabulous this year!  Make sure and shop quickly because their stuff always sells out quick! 

If you have followed me for awhile, you know I am a huge believer in using what you have first, then buy a few new items for a quick update.  I already had these wicker patio chairs from last year.  My mom wasn't using them anymore so I happily took them off her hands.  They were a brown finish and a little sun bleached, so a can of gray spray paint gave them a whole new look!  A few weeks ago, I grabbed some new cushions and throw pillows from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart and now we have a perfect little place to relax outside!  

The cushions are so comfy and can easily be washed just by spraying them down.  The cute throw pillows are reversible, but I prefer the striped side!  I have owned my outdoor rug for years, but I wanted to share this adorable striped on in case you are in the market for a new, outdoor rug...

I also picked up a few of these pretty lanterns.  I love that they came with a battery operated candle that flickers to give it a real look!  It is so pretty and crates a cozy ambiance in the evenings!

It is amazing how updated this space now looks...just a few new items made such a difference!

On the other end of my small patio, I created a cute dining area using stylish bistro chairs and a simple dining table from the Better Homes & Gardens line from Walmart.  All items were so budget friendly and I really like that the table folds up for storage.  I love having 2 separate areas to utilize.  I can easily move things around if I need to!  This just goes to show you that you do not have to have a huge space to create a functional and welcoming place to enjoy!

The textured throw pillows add a cozy touch while providing extra comfort and style.

To accessorize the table with, I added a pretty planter and another candle lantern. Simple touches make a big impact! Check out all the outdoor decor from the Better Homes and Gardens line at Walmart here!

I am looking forward to spending a lot of time out is a  prefect place to have my morning coffee, have dinner with my daughter or have a glass of wine with girlfriends! 

And now that spring weather has arrived, I am looking forward to adding a lot more plants soon!

I hope this post inspired you to create an outdoor oasis of your on.  Whether you have a large space to work with or a smaller one like me,  the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart has a wide variety of decor, furniture and accessories to get your patio ready to enjoy!
